THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY

Vehicle

2008 Cadillac Escalade 4dr SUV (6.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

THE GOOD ... Looks of the Escalade are second to none (eye catcher) ..... Powerful 6.2 motor (love the sound when I turn it on) THE BAD ... Horrible fuel mileage (barely 11mpg), plastic door handles (c'mon really??), Rear windows go down half way (sucks for rear passengers), Rear passengers are always hitting their feet exiting (seat adjustment needed), 3rd row seating ever worse (passengers knees hit their chest) THE UGLY ... Plastic (fake) wood grain interior panels are quick to get scratched and LOOKS horrible!! Overall I like my Escalade, just wished I purchased an ESV instead. Full rear doors(windows roll ALL the way down) 3rdrow seating has more leg room plus you have cargo space

Favorite Features

As the owner and driver I am somewhat content with my Escalade which I purchased for on my birthday for 34,500 in August 2012. Powerful engine, interior, steering wheel functions, gps, onstar, bose radio all thumbs up!! Glad I didn't purchase this truck for 80k I would've been upset !!!!! Don't think its worth 80k using a lot of plastic parts

Suggested Improvements

1) Need better fuel economy 2) Needs an Ipod or aux jack (Tahoe & suburban cost less money and have it.... clueless as to why an $80k vehicle doesn't have it. 3) Needs Metal door handles 4) Needs more leg room even if compromises truck space on base model. 5) $80k and fake wood grain? damn shame
